Smash’s Favorite Finds – October
- Kawaii Kigu Onesie
Guess what’s BACK?! The dinosaur onesie! Kawaii Kigu sent me this AMAZING dinosaur outfit a while back, which I wrote about, A Day in the Life of a Dinosaur. Not only do I get to keep my dinosaur outfit, I get to give one TO YOU! Well, okay, if you don’t want to be a dinosaur, you can choose something else–but if you don’t want to be a dinosaur, I really don’t know what the hell is wrong with you. We all know how much fun being a dinosaur is–and if you need a quick recap, here’s this:
(Winner may choose any onesie or hoodie off the Kawaii Kigu site except anything under the “Characters” tab)
2. STILA “In the Light” Eye Shadow Palette. On the rare occasion I do wear make-up, I am a big fan of Stila. I scored this at Nordstrom Rack and loved the colors, so I picked one up for my little, lucky dinosaur winner!
3. The Mighty Mug I had this mug in my very first giveaway I did a couple months back and I fell in love with it. I got my hands on another one for this giveaway! WAHOOOO! The Mighty Mug is awesome because once you place it down, if you accidentally knock into it, the mug will NOT knock over. It has SmartGrip technology that makes it only possible for the mug to be picked up if using the vertical lifting motion (as in–how a normal human would pick up their coffee cup…) Furthermore, it keeps hot drinks HOT for 6 hours, and keeps cold drinks COLD for up to 12 hours. I absolutely love it, and have the Mighty Mug Go SS for YOU!
4. Adult Coloring Book. Okay, I know this sounds sort of funny, but I’ve heard A LOT of people talking about how therapeutic coloring can be. There are actually really neat “adult coloring books” out on the market now, and I saw this animal one and flipped through it, and it is REALLY neat!
If you saw earlier this morning, Justin and I have been using this game with Barb to help her with reading. Barb is NOT a fan of reading, and she moans and groans when we sit down each night to do our required reading. We needed to find a way to make reading fun, and also a way to entice her into WANTING to read. So, we received this game, read her the storybook that came with it all about Nora and Leo, and we told Barb that every time she had positive behavior, she would receive a jewel to put in her treasure box. Sure enough, that worked! Barb wanted to receive as many jewels as possible, because as the book explains, once your treasure chest is full of jewels, you receive a gift from the fairy “Nora” (or Leo- depending on the kit you purchase) for your positive behavior. This kit is AWESOME and almost plays like a game- well, at least it does in our house! The winner of the giveaway will receive the same kit (your choice between Leo or Nora) to use with their kids, grandkids, etc. If you cannot wait to purchase, and you’d like to order one now in order to receive before the holiday, click HERE.
6. Clarifying Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge.
This sponge is AWESOME. I found it while scouring the beauty section of one of my favorite local shops. The sponge is made from the root of Konjac vegetable and is all natural. It has a light texture to it, so it buffs your skin and I’ve heard only good things about using charcoal on your face relative to detoxification. Also, I believe I even read somewhere that it can tighten your pores. It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen, but I used it and it does work. Look, I even made you a picture of me using it. You’re so lucky.
7. DINOSAUR SOAPS!!!
I mean COME ON!!! How adorable are these?! My friend Tarnished Tiara Mom hand made these with essential oils and sent Barb and I whole bunch! There were dinosaurs, Legos, Pac Mac- the whole works!
Naturally, Barb stole all the ones that weren’t dinosaurs. So, I am offering up a few of mine in the giveaway because they are honestly too cute not to share–and they smell AMAZING!!!
8. Steve Madden Leg Warmers.
Immediately, when I saw these, my brain thought: “A WAY TO DRESS UP MY STRETCHY PANTS!!!!!” Am I right? Yes. You’re welcome.
9. $50.00 Wendy’s Gift Card.
As some of you may have seen, I wrote an article about a man who was overly kind to me at the Wendy’s drive through window. The article was published on the Huffington Post, and within a short period of time, I had people from their corporate office contacting me, and even received a letter from the Executive Vice President of Wendy’s! They used my article at their annual conference in Florida and spoke about Dave Thomas’s core values, “Just be nice,” “Do the right thing,” and “Give something back,” all of which applied to the kind man’s actions that day at the drive through window. Wendy’s has thanked me beyond deserving with a Wendy doll for Barb, pencils, a water bottle, and even gift cards for our family. However, they sent me a $50.00 gift card where I can now pay it forward. So, I am including that as part of this giveaway. If you haven’t had a chance to read the article– I hope you will. A random act of kindness can go SO much further than imaginable, as that amazingly kind man showed me that one terrifying day.
10. THIS SIGN!!!
You guys know that I have an obsession with funny sayings and funny signs– I’ve actually been collecting them for these giveaways as I see them. They make me happy. I hope they give you a laugh, too.
11. “Moments of Genius” Notebook
Because this is awesome and who doesn’t need a notebook to document their genius? Exactly.
12. This HILARIOUS mug.
Now, I know we already have a functional coffee mug in here with The Mighty Mug–so let’s just think of this one as purely ornamental–because it’s pretty effin’ funny.
Dinosaur necklace from the dinoSTORE! This is one of my favorite pieces in my dino shrine of a store. If you haven’t had a chance, check out the other fun item’s in the dinoSTORE!

Not Required, but GREATLY appreciated:
My goal with my page is to maintain growth. The more opportunities I have in the writing world translates to maybe ONE DAY doing this full time–which would be my dream. However, for now, I must still do my monkey-work at my day job and maintain this on the side. Ways you can help?
